There are plenty of campgrounds, house rentals, and hotels available for those wanting to have an extended stay on the lake. There’s plenty to do for day trippers too!
Families have visited Lake Winnipesaukee for years, and Weirs Beach is one of the many reasons why. This fun-filled area offers pristine beaches, exciting boardwalks, and lots of good food. Children will love the mini golf course, penny arcades, and bumper cars.
